Coat Pick-Up Service Ends Friday, April 18
After this Friday, April 18, 2014 adult staff members will NOT gather up students’ coats, jackets, sweaters, and/or sweat shirts that are left on the playground or field. We are turning the responsibility for your child’s belongings back to your child. Students were notified of this change when Mrs. Weaver visited classrooms on Friday, April 11. This week, teachers will do a few reminders to help child learn and practice the habit of responsibility. After that, natural consequences will be in effect.
Here are some strategies/ideas that Mrs. Weaver shared with students:
1. Morning recess might be chilly, but it’s often warm enough by lunch or afternoon recess to go without a jacket.
2. Put up with being a little chilly for the first few minutes of recess knowing that you’ll warm up once you start playing.
3. If you need to take jacket off, tie it around waist – that way your jacket comes inside when you do.
Please help us teach and reinforce responsible habits that will serve your child well throughout his or her life!
Open Enrollment Update
We are pleased to announce that we were able to approve all of the Open Enrollment Applications and Open Enrollment Continuation Forms that have been submitted for 2014-15, unless behavior or attendance is a concern. Mrs. Weaver signed off on the applications that have been received and sent them on for processing. Parents should receive official notification from the district in several weeks. Mrs. Weaver is holding applications if attendance or behavior is a concern, and will contact those parents individually.
If you haven’t submitted an Open Enrollment Application or Continuation Form and need to, please take care of this important task as soon as you can.
Afternoon Kindergarten Arrival
Students in afternoon kindergarten should arrive between 12:15 and 12:30 p.m. If your student is arriving prior to 12:15 he or she is too early.

Notify Teachers of Early Pick Up
During State Tests
Owyhee students will continue to take state tests for the next three weeks. Please make sure your child’s teacher knows if you will pick your student up early so they don’t begin tests they won’t have time to complete. This will also give us the option to test your child ahead of schedule. Please help your child be successful by having them eat a healthy breakfast and get a good night’s sleep.
